Atos unveils new exascale-class BullSequana supercomputer, for digital and economic sovereignty

Paris France, February 16, 2022

Atos currently unveils its new exascale-course supercomputer, the BullSequana XH3000, a hybrid computing platform with unparalleled versatility and performance to allow leading scientists and scientists to progress exploration in sectors this sort of as temperature forecasting and climate improve, new drug discovery, genomics. Created and produced in Europe at its factory in Angers, France, this is Atos’ most efficient and impressive supercomputer and an important component in securing today’s digital and economic sovereignty. As the undisputed European chief in supercomputing, Atos plays a key job in addressing sovereignty issues, ensuring that critical HPC information and expertise are fostered and remain in Europe.

Empowering digital and economic sovereignty

In get to acquire comprehensive benefit of their details when retaining their capacity to shield it under any circumstance, governments, public bodies and non-public businesses are now creating sovereignty a main concern. With its BullSequana XH3000 and its experience in sovereign cloud and cybersecurity, Atos is dedicated to delivering its shoppers with the indicates to physical exercise greater handle over the knowledge they develop and trade.

  • Exascale[1] efficiency with Accelerated Hybrid Computing today’s raise in the amount and complexity of data means that there is an exponential have to have in terms of computing electricity, in buy to tackle the new worries that humanity is facing nowadays such as world-wide warming and the Covid-19 pandemic. The BullSequana XH3000 will be in a position to deliver unprecedented computing ability – up to 6x maximize in computing power than earlier variations – at any scale, up to an exascale-course system by using Hybrid Computing state-of-the-art methods, combining CPUs, GPUs with AI or even in quantum computing hardware in conventional scientific simulation workflows.
  • Greener HPC – harmonizing overall performance & electrical power consumption – the BullSequana XH3000 is the just one of most vitality-efficient supercomputers on the market place many thanks to its eco-style and architecture, patented Direct Liquid Cooling (DLC) remedy – which will deliver above 50% much more cooling ability than prior generations – and absolutely eco-compliant solution lifecycle, from raw material sourcing and manufacturing, to screening and transportation, and disposal/recycling.

“High-general performance computing has designed monumental contributions to science, engineering and the good quality of human everyday living and is a cornerstone of innovation and scientific development.“ stated Earl Joseph, CEO at Hyperion Investigation, HPC business analyst team “As the leading European HPC seller, Atos is well positioned to go on advancing analysis and innovation with its new supercomputer, and to carry exascale class devices to its shoppers. With its new BullSequana XH3000 supercomputer, hybrid computing ecosystem integrating AI and quantum, and its powerful roadmap for exascale, Atos demonstrates a clear, detailed vision of the foreseeable future of scientific simulation, although getting into account the great importance of decarbonization.”

“Supercomputing plays a pivotal position in driving improvements for small business, modern society, and the international economy as a entire and is also key to scientific and economic sovereignty in the 21st century.” stated Rodolphe Belmer, CEO of Atos. “We are exceptionally very pleased of our function as a chief in HPC and of our new BullSequana supercomputer, unveiled nowadays, which benefits from 15 decades of R&D endeavours and delivers with each other Atos’ verified expertise and encounter in higher-performance computing, AI, quantum, protection and digital decarbonization. It will no question empower, as a result of the gateway of exascale, some of the vital scientific and industrial innovation breakthroughs of the upcoming.”

The BullSequana XH3000 integrates the most up-to-date and most-demanding technologies, networks and interconnect and is powered by the most up-to-date CPU and GPU processor and accelerator architectures from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and in the long run the European microprocessor from SiPearl, for improved ability capability and improved effectiveness, to give greater scale, faster and a lot more economical scientific simulations. Its OpenSequana architecture tends to make it totally appropriate with any upcoming computing blade and interconnect technologies, so customers can quickly scale up as and when required. With a protection-by-layout approach, integrating vulnerability checking and risk anticipation, the BullSequana XH3000 makes certain that details is powerfully protected.

The BullSequana XH3000 is planned to be readily available from Q4 2022.
